Determining parenting time in family law and divorce

When a Colorado couple has ended their union, but shares a child, there are inevitable issues that must be addressed as part of their divorce settlement. The best interests of the child are, obviously, paramount, but determining parenting time is one of the most important factors with the care and nurturing of the child. Understanding what the law says about the child's best interests and parenting time is one of the key factors that the parents should grasp as the case moves forward.

Making co-parenting successful

After a divorce, Colorado parents will be faced with the very important task of raising their kids in separate households. No matter the situations that caused the divorce, or the feelings that might still linger afterward, parents should work together to raise their children. Although challenging, co-parenting after a divorce can be done successfully.

What women should know about finances in divorce

Many people in Colorado may experience some unpleasant financial surprises when going through a divorce. One online marketplace, Worthy, found that nearly half of divorced women in a survey said this had happened to them. The incidence of surprise was greater among women under 55 than for those 55 and older.

Financial woes are a major cause for divorce

Many married Colorado couples have experienced marital tension due to financial issues. They are not alone in this. In fact, some studies show that a majority of divorces are caused by financial struggles. However, there are ways to work around financial issues.

Dealing with child custody for never-married parents

While child custody issues may be more simple when a baby's parents are married at the time of birth, an increasing number of Colorado parents are facing a different situation. A mother may not list her baby's father on the birth certificate if she was not married or otherwise involved in a relationship with him at the time of the baby's birth. In the future, however, questions can arise about child custody. Even single mothers without their children's fathers in the picture may wonder if they should go to court to establish legal custody.

Injunctions that are issued when divorces are pending

When people want to get divorced in Colorado, they need to be prepared for some of the restrictions that will be placed on them once they file their petitions for dissolution. When divorce petitions are filed in the state, the court issues several automatic injunctions.

Female breadwinners consider implications of divorce

Female breadwinners in Colorado and across the country are now having the broader conversation about the implications of divorce. Women are becoming savvier in taking ownership of their careers and becoming successful, but they may be responsible for alimony after divorcing their spouse. In the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers survey, more than 4 in 10 attorneys reported an increase in women being on the hook for spousal maintenance and child support.

The impact of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on alimony payments

For many ex-spouses in Colorado, coming to an agreement on alimony can be an arduous task. To begin with, creating a payment structure that offers the recipient what they want while helping the payer maintain as much of their income as possible is no easy feat. Additionally, laws are constantly changing, forcing soon-to-be exes to reassess how they plan to settle matters.
